            Bug ID: 437668
           Summary: KMail spawns speech-dispatcher-ng and playback despite
                    producing no audio
           Product: kmail2
           Version: Git (master)
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: herzenschein at gmail.com
  Target Milestone: ---

Opening KMail consistently creates audio applications named
"speech-dispatcher-ng" and "playback" in plasma-pa. It also creates processes
called sd_espeak-ng, sd_dummy, and speech-dispatcher. Those are closed after
KMail closes.

This issue ends up causing bug 417457.

The only espeak-related packages I have here are libespeak-ng1 and
I'm also using pipewire-pulse instead of pulseaudio if that matters (doesn't
seem related).
I am not using systemd startup.
